Orlando based collective, Feddi Family, have finally delivered the follow-up to their 2018 EP “La Familia.” Filled to the brim with the group’s trademark grimy flows and varied subject matters, this 7-track album truly serves as a breakout project that gives the listeners a better understanding of the Family’s true talent.
Beginning with a dark, piano infused track, the artists explain their mind-state to set the tone for the rest of the project. Brimming with confidence, they speak on how these songs are intended to disprove anyone that doubted their ability in the game. Afterwards, they transition to a more laid back ode that honors Backwoods and brings the audience back down to Earth to celebrate something that’s always brought people together, not torn them apart.
Midway in the project the group boasts a feature from Danny Towers, the prominent Orlando emcee who’s spread his verses throughout the sunshine state and has rapped on stages alongside artists like Robb Bank$ and Wifisfuneral.
The rest of the project carries on in a lighthearted, underground-influenced sound that embodies lo-fi Hip-Hop and puts the vocal work and bar-for-bar rap of its featured emcees in the spotlight. The outro is more experimental and explores an upbeat, dark track, where the Family sings/growls over their verses/adlibs. It leaves the listener scratching their head but also wanting to come back and listen again and again, as does the rest of the project. It’s a magnetic way to end the project, enticing listeners to dive deeper into the Family’s catalogue.
